Standard Holiday Inn decor, rooms were large, spacious and fairly well equipped. I've stayed there twice within the span of a week. The first room had severe internet problems for some reason, the connection was being dropped constantly. The taxi to St. John's city centre is about $15 but there is a Sobeys supermarket about 20 min walk from the...

This hotel is OK - honestly the rates should probably be slightly cheaper - it's old. The service & staff were good. It was clean (but tired). East Side Mario's is the Hotel Restaurant which isn't too bad. The location is close to the airport, but you would need a car/cab to get downtown. The rooms are tired and the...

The ladies on the front desk were very helpful and friendly...I can't say enough good things about them.

Hotel rooms are scarce in St.Johns , hence the ability of this hotel to overcharge. Rooms are basic,small and clean. Toiletries are of a minimum, no shower gel and 1 shampoo/ conditioner pp. Tea/coffee 1 drink pp..Washbasin is fitted in wardrobe ( strange). But rooms are clean and adequate. Nowhere close to downtown,1 hour walk. By far the most unhelpful...

We generally stay at the Holiday Inn because it's conviently located between downtown and shopping. The service is great and the hotel is neat and clean and a good value for what you pay. Eastside Marios is a bit of a hit and miss and can be quite expensive for breakfast.
